Today, we announced the latest version of Bomgar Remote Support, 18.1. This new release offers new usability and security improvements to enhance the overall user and customer experience. Customers receiving remote support will appreciate the updated look and feel of the Customer Client, creating a more natural support experience for end users. The modern chat interface feels more familiar, with a simpler layout and easy-to-use controls. The support rep’s profile picture (or their initials) will be visible beside chat messages, focusing the attention on the conversation and building trust between support teams and users.
